    June Road Trip

    Hey all,

    I've got a road trip we've been planning for a few months, looks like it might come together.

    Jun02- [email protected]
    Jun03- Travel

    Pretty linear, overall. A bit of backtracking from Arizona back west, but it'll be a good time. I'm a Philly fan, and my buddy is a die-hard Mets fan, so its a plus we get to see them on a west coast swing.

    We did a trip two summers ago over memorial day. 5 days, went Baltimore- Cleveland- Pittsburgh- Boston- Philly. Good time, that was.

    We've got a free day unplanned yet between Phoenix and San Diego, anyone have any good ideas for plans then? The NCAA super reigonals start on friday the 9th, so no ASU baseball games around.

    Justin

    I want to say our six pack is somewhere out in RF. I, for one, don't mind sitting in the OF.

    Oh, you can get expensive seats behind home in the upper deck

    <I guess I'm paranoid, but last year we sat two rows behind the Tribe dugout against Baltimore. Thank God we left our daughter at home, a little kid could certainly get nailed down there, and a little boy did, on the first base side. I can't imagine what his parents were going through.>

    I know what you mean. I went to a minor league game with my wife. We were just off of the screen behind the plate, front row, awesome seats but my glove was always up. It looked like we were closer to the catcher than the shortstop was. Someone got nailed behind the 3B dugout h but fortunately someone found a doctor

    I always buy the cheapest seat available and stand on the home run porch. If you wanna know where Manny Ramirez's fourth career HR ended up ...

    Unfortunately, I'm too far West to catch any splash balls.
    I will see YOU on April 29th :gt Actually, you'll probably avoid me, but that's understandable

    I live about 2500 feet from Great American Ballpark, I'm sure several Reds games are in the mix.
    I'm doing Coors Field in June and Kauffman Stadium in August.
    Plus my annual pilgramage to Wrigley.

At Jacob's Field I tend to catch about one ball every other game so that would be two and a half in five games. Since the parks are new to me, I'm aiming for catching two (hopefully it'll be like the Toronto Skydome). And another possibility for a weekend JUST opened up 6/29-7/3.
    Just got my credits from the airline posted to my account

    another trip may be opening up for me also...a friend of mine was showing a book to his fiance of the stadiums we are going to this year, and she flipped open to the great american ballpark, and she said she would like to go, don't know when though, it is a long drive from long island

    The drive to LA won't be bad, I'll be staying there. But if catching five parks in five days using a $80 roundtrip ticket from the other side of the country, and staying with a friend, ain't fun, then stick a fork in me
